: As a Caribbean Bahamian I am deeply hurt and
: insulted by the decision to not host
: Carifesta. Indeed, this was a time to show
: off my little country to my cousins in the
: south. Additionally the work done by the
: group that went to Trinidad made us look so
: good, that many were preparing to travel
: north to be with us.
: I do not believe nor subscribe to the
: excuses made as to why we are not hosting.
: It seems that only events that expose the
: 'American way of Life' get attention and
: anything from anywhere else is considered
: less than.
: I do hope that a large contingent prepares
: itself to go to Guyana [who will only have
: months to prepare] and make sure that The
: Bahamas stays on the cultural map.
: Thanks for listening [reading]
